10 Musicians Who Rock Tom Ford
When Jay Z says you should ‘change clothes’ people listen. The rapper who “made made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can’ is the same guy who buried the throwback basketball jersey and brought back Timberland construction boots just ’cause.
On Hov’s celebrated album, ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail,’ he salutes his favorite designer on the Timbaland-produced ‘Tom Ford.’ Rather than get high on MDMA, the veteran rhyme-slinger’s drug of choice is wearing a crisp suit made by Tom Ford.
“I don’t pop molly, I rock Tom Ford,” he raps on the hook. “International, bring back the Concorde / Numbers don’t lie, check the scoreboard / Tom Ford.”
Undoubtedly, the song has put the 52-year-old fashion icon in the national spotlight.
Take a look below at our list of 10 Artists Who Rock Tom Ford. No mollies included.
Of course, Jay-Z kicks off the tally looking debonair in his two-piece grey Tom Ford suit, which he wore at the 'Great Gatsby' film premiere. The cream-colored shirt, silk tie, pocket square and leather shoes complete the whole ensemble. Clap for a well-dressed rap mogul with his rapping a--.
When it comes to the Bawse, it's nothing but the finer threads. Rick Ross looks so fresh and so clean in his Tom Ford tuxedo he donned at the 2013 Grammy Awards. Rozay kept it O.G. but classy with his vintage Cazal sunglasses and a fat diamond ring on his pinky finger. We think Tom Ford would approve of this. R-Ruh!
Rihanna slayed everyone at the 2012 Met Gala with her Tom Ford backless crocodile dress. Since RiRi has a penchant for getting naked, we love how she reveals some skin by showing off her muscluar back. This scaly gown hugs her slender body so perfectly. Bravo Rihanna on your reptilian dress.
Justin Timberlake brought a little sophistication to the R&B game with his song 'Suit & Tie' (Featuring Jay-Z). In the video, the crooner wore several different outfits from the latest Tom Ford collection. At the '20/20 Experience' album release party, JT went with a black tuxedo jacket with a white polka-dot dress shirt and black tie. Thumbs up to you Timberlake!
Drake is one of the most stylish rappers in the game. Drizzy kept it simple and classy in his Tom Ford black suit at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. Not pictured, however, is his shoes, which were black lace ups with red tassels on them. We hope Drake can persuade his boss Lil Wayne to rock Tom Ford instead of Trukfit. We're just saying ...
Jennifer Lopez looks hot in her high-necked blue sequined Tom Ford gown she wore at the 2013 amFar Inspiration Gala in New York. The shimmering dress, which covered nearly every inch of her curvy body, is from Ford's Spring 2011 collection. In 2000, J.Lo wowed us with her almost see-through Versace Grammy dress. 10-plus years later, the singer-actress is still wowing us. Muy caliente!
Kanye West keeps it simple with his Tom Ford tuxedo at the 2012 Met Gala. Fellas, take notes, this is how you wear a tux. We applaud Yeezy's minimalism here including the gold rope bracelet around his wrist. Despite his uncool behavior as of late, West was mighty cool in his penguin suit.
It's showtime! Producer Swizz Beatz kicked it up a notch with this Tom Ford ensemble. The hitmaker stood out at the 2012 Grammy Awards in his purple velvet cocktail jacket, matching bow tie and fleur-de-lis lapel pin. The tuxedo jacket is from Ford's Fall/Winter 2011 collection. With Swizzy's wife, Alicia Keys, by his side, the couple were a visual delight to behold at the Grammys.
Not only do Tom Ford make tuxedos and gowns for men and women, respectfully, he also makes cool accessories like sunglasses. A playful Rita Ora posted an Instagram pic of herself rocking Ford's Nastasya Sunglasses. The mirrored shades are shaped like cat eyes and blocks snoopy people and hurtful UV rays from the sun. Even if we can't see Ora's peepers, the 'R.I.P' singer still dazzles in her sunglasses.
Even stoners can look cool in Tom Ford. At the 2013 Grammy Awards, Wiz Khalifa came suited and booted in a Ford-designed tuxedo. What makes this so great is that the Pittsburgh rhymer choose to go with a cream-colored jacket and black pants. This flip of the traditional all-black tux helped Wiz stand out on the red carpet. Not to mention, his lovely wife, Amber Rose, was by his side as well.
